The round-up: delicious breakfasts in Graceville
The leafy surrounds of Graceville is the perfect breeding ground for gorgeous cafes, making it one of the best suburbs for your next coffee catch-up or weekend brunch date.
Beyond the hustle and bustle of Brisbane’s inner city and over the Indooroopilly Bridge is a suburb overflowing with laid-back charm and coffee spots in spades. Graceville’s tree-lined promenades host an array of long-standing and up-and-coming brunch haunts leaving you spoiled for choice. Why not tick a few off your list this weekend, starting with a coffee and breakfast in the flower garden of Goodness Gracious Cafe on Oxley Road. We have it on good authority that the smoked eggs and duck prosciutto with truffle aioli and artichoke is to die for. Just around the corner, Ananas Espresso on Central Avenue is a great spot to relax. The recycled furniture and welcoming staff add a home-like atmosphere, and many locals swear by its coffee. The Dallas is a great breakfast feast to try, with scrambled eggs on sourdough with bacon, haloumi, avocado and tomato relish.
Honour Avenue boasts a bunch of brilliant brunch institutions, including the cafe-patisserie Three Girls Skipping. This French-inspired cafe is best known for its cakes and sweet treats, but we simply cant ignore a good avocado smash, which comes with Persian feta and roasted tomato on sourdough. Honour Espresso is a longstanding breakfast institution in the area, known for delivering the goods every morning. Patience is a virtue, Patience in this case being the name of Honour Espresso’s must-try breakfast, which boasts free-range poached eggs, seasoned spinach, field mushrooms, buffalo mozzarella and pecorino romano cheese. Fraiche Deli on Graceville Avenue is a great spot to pick up pasta, oils, biscuits, loose-leaf teas and coffee or some grab-and-go sustenance, but if you were to take a seat you would be able to enjoy the sublime Eggs Benedict, complete with homemade hollandaise sauce and you choice of either bacon, ham, salmon or grilled mushrooms. New to the scene but no slouch is Bar None, which makes a mean smashed avocado with grilled tomato and poached eggs on a corn fritter with sweet chilli sour cream sauce. If you are finished salivating, pick up the phone, call some friends and arrange breakfast in Graceville immediately.
